This is a video grab from a trailcam, so not too clear! I'm guessing this is a ferret... but could it be a polecat-ferret? Certainly the cam film always changes colours from what they would be in daytime, so too hard to call? (The film is too big to go on) Many thanks

Can't see any sort of face mask, so I agree Ferret but if you come from the direction that Ferrets are white/cream and Polecat-ferrets are sort of Polecat coloured, then it's the latter. What it isn't is a Polecat.

Roughly where in the country was it photographed? Oh. Warwickshire I guess. Doh!

On some bits of the film the face does look a bit paler, but I agree it's def not a Polecat! Hasn't been back, ... so far
